The Wilderness Green Season deals are expected to be announced within the next month. Last year I paid $350 per night for the offer, which was the same as the Kwando 5 rivers pricing. Adding in the flight transfers, you can average somewhere between $400-$500 per night depending on how many transfers you do. Our 10 night trip (3 nights Tau Pan, 4 Duba, 3 Selinda) was $4400 per person. My 12 night trip in December (4 Duma Tau, 3 Tubu Tree and 5 Kwara) was a bit more at $5500, but I was on my own so paying single supplements on the transfers.

The prices this year probably won't be as low as last time and the camps may not be the same but it should still be substantially less than the current advertised prices.

Thank you. StokeyG. I'll get on my guy right away to be on the look out for the new pricing. WS camps do look and sound amazing. I have a copy of their printed brochure....what a dream book. Wonderful photos.

TC: I stayed in Meru at Elsa's last August and LOVED it! It is a very interesting looking camp with separate "houses" built into the rocks/trees. (Mine was a 2 story with the tree coming through both floors -- and overlooking the plains...really lovely!) And yes we saw the Grevy's and the reticulated zebra too -- quite a treat - as well as most of the other critters you named. The camp managers are delightful and the food delicious as the camp (also Tortilis in Amboseli) is owned by Italians so fresh pasta...yum! Comments about the camp are included in my trip report at:
